Here is some photos and a brief description of a table I did in my show, thought other’s would get a kick out of seeing it. Talk about what you do with your scraps, well check it out.

That’s very good, Charles. Great idea. I’ve always found slab tables difficult to conceive unless they are on a metal pedestal/supports. This is a really cool solution…masterfully done.

I suppose making a stump from dimensional lumber is about as difficult as making dimensional lumber out of a stump.
That wood came full circle it seems.
Nice job!

Great looking stump(s) Charles. A nice way to make them. I’ve got a slab top on a table beside me now but I’ve never been too fond of it’s base so this might be a great addition.

Absolutely beautiful work.

Me and those chainsaw heads don’t get along very well though.

That is the coolest table base I have ever seen! By FAR! It looks like a LOT of work but well worth the effort.

Monte, I understand about the chain saw heads, the Holy Gallad which is the carbide grinder head is much easier to use and control , and they cut pretty fast as well,

Living relatively close to Disneyland, and visiting their hotel that looks like a mountain lodge..I can easily see this table in the main lobby where folks sit on couches waiting for their rooms..it does look like something the Disney folks would come up with..well done Charles..very well done indeed
